I realized that I have gathered a small pile of chargers and batteries for those old, "worthless" <12Mp point-and-shoot cameras, so I hit on the notion that they would be a great way to power handhelds, by installing the batteries and chargers as one piece inside the battery compartment. Here's some examples where it works well.

This deserves at least one view. Admittedly, it was extremely poorly titled, but the hack does work extremely well.

there is a bug in these forums where it won't show you the views until someone actually replies. Been that way for awhile i think?

 

But I think this is fantastic! So you are providing the actual 9v to power the system as well as charging the LIPOs all at once?

I think it is more like 7.3 volts, but yes, the batteries and charger are always connected, to add more juice I plug in the ac cord without disconnecting anything from the handhelds. I made the mistake of trying to replace the Nomad screen, it is undamaged but I have yet to find a cheap 3.5" screen that works, even with a video amp transistor added, the screens are so cheap that I've been through three bad ones already, I am going to have to bite the bullet and buy one of the pricier screens with fingers crossed.

 

The Game Gear, though, has rarely needed a recharge, running an overdrive and McWill screen.
